Publisher's Note: Heirloom flowers, with their exquisite colors and scents, graceful forms and hardy constitutions, are often easier to grow and more fragrant than modern varieties. Sweet William and Black-Eyed Susan, Love-in-a-Mist and Love-in-a-Puff, Kiss-Me-Quick and Angel's Tears, Bells-of-Ireland and Lady's Eardrops: the names are as much a pleasure to the ear as the flowers are a pleasure to the eye. Growing an heirloom garden is an infinitely rewarding experience, providing an abundance of old-fashioned flowers to gather for fresh and dried bouquets and a haven for butterflies and hummingbirds. Each blossom is a beautiful reason to conserve and preserve diversity.

Heirloom Flowers profiles more than 100 of the most sought-after varieties, both cultivated and wild, providing their specific qualities, growing conditions, cultivation tips, and historical and cultural information. The comprehensive resource section gives lists of seed suppliers, seed-saving networks and organizations, historical societies, and gardens to visit.

Tovah Martin is an award-winning writer, gardener, and photographer. The gardening editor for Victoria magazine, she writes for many other publications as well. She lives in Roxbury, Connecticut.
